As I cancelled my first order (within the 20) to use the 20% discount for owning a Sony phone/tab I seemingly went out of the first 20 batch.

 

I must say, with stock in Germany etc, who only gets 20 units in a batch delivery; guess they really didn't expect to sell many :eek:

 

Mine says delivery today or Monday, but I am not expecting it as its not shipped yet :angry_face:

 

Getting impatient to use it now :D

Ordered on 7th, received today.

 

I'm just getting started here but why isn't my embedded artwork showing up? Works fine on everything else. folder.jpg doesn't seem to work either.

Use Sony Media Go for import and sync songs to WALKMAN. You can put the artwork into the songs using it.

 

However the artwork will not follow the WAV files to the WALKMAN when transfer. You have to put the artwork later using menu in Music app on WALKMAN or let Media Go convert your file to FLAC while transfer to WALKMAN.

Ok same here for the first order and cancelled and reordered on the 10th; oh well, more waiting :) Enjoy!

 

Out of interest, when did the store say you would receive the item, as mine says -> Delivery: between 21/03 & 24/03

I pre-ordered the day the pre-orders started working and it always said 21st-24th. I didn't expect that to be accurate to be honest. I chose the free delivery and got it next day too. Pretty chuffed. Sounds like the first shipment was a very small number of units though. 

 

Will post some detailed impressions later. On first listen, a very neutral, clean digital sound. Not going to be for everyone but I like it.

Some of my embedded art seems to work, some doesn't. Odd.

Does it have the EU volume cap ?

post #4357 of 7559

@ Rob49 I have an EU-One too (Germany) and I tried to figure out about the volum cap. I compared it with my J3 and the Covon is louder. But as long as someone who ordered from Japan compares it with a J3 and tells if it is louder or not, how is there a way to know?

 

For the art: I had only problems with difrent arts in the same folder. As long as in every folder there is the same art it shows up correctly (I embedded the art with Mp3tag and just dragged and dropped my mp3 onto the ZX1.

 

@ Vect: I love the picture with all your electronics. I am still debating to by the SBH52. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: some spelling and massage to Vect.

Yes very true, that's the only definite way anyone will know. ( As much as I love my F886, I wish I could have been patient for the ZX1 ! )

As the UK Sony store has sold out, does anyone have a recommended Japan Dealer, so that I can direct import.
Thanks

Thanks. Have just checked their price, and after adding import taxes, I am better waiting for some more UK stock.

Just curious how bad is the volume cap? How loud are you guys listening at anyway?

I supposed the cap be bypassed with an amp?

With advice from fellow members I bought a Fiio E12 amp, and it solved the problem of the volume cap on the F886, so whether it's got a volume cap or not, it's easily solved. ( At full volume, just passable for me, needed a touch more....and the E12 more than provides that ! )

Ok, that sounds like the vol. is probably halved of the non-Cap model.

With the vol on my unit, 60% was bordering on deafening levels.
As a matter of comparison on an iPhone, thats about setting the cap at right under the letter 't'

The new Cowon player has me on edge about keeping the ZX1....and my ZX1 is still in customs.
